Publisher’s Blurb:
Worlds collide as dueling escape plans and murder plots converge in a house of cards that’s about to come tumbling down! A desperate starlet, a greedy mobster, a hired killer and a delusional Dexter fan all stand on the brink…but who will pass the point of no return in part six of this fast, funny, 100% cool new series?

Reviewer’s Comments:
Andre Osborne, script writer of Blue Estate, designed this comic to read like a drama you’d watch on television. I don’t mean one of those shows that’ll be cancelled before it completes it’s first season either. This is Showtime’s “Dexter” good.

Before you get all excited and run out and buy the latest issue because I said it was good, pay attention. Although, there is a recap at the beginning of every episode, I mean issue, there are a lot of moving parts in this book. There are plots and subplots, characters and character associations that need to be paid special attention to when reading this book. That being said, Image Comics has priced this title digitally at the low price of $1.99. No, that’s not a typo. Here’s the link, go buy them.

Now you should have no reason not to go buy all six issues and get in on this book at the ground level.

This book has all of the aspects of a successful comic book. You find yourself rooting for certain characters and hoping the karma machine will smack the shit out of the other ones. Still other characters will make you just feel sorry for them and you’ll find yourself shaking your head when you know they’re being played.

This issue comes to a climactic head at the end of the book that has genuinely made me eager to read issue seven.

The art in the book isn’t the normal, clean, crisp style that I’m known to love but this somewhat grittier style works perfectly with this book.

Tired of paying .99 a comic from the big two for stories you couldn’t give a damn about? Image Comics and other publishers are stepping up to the plate with some really good an unique stories – throw them the damn ball.
